This chapter identifies the bases of early intervention, including the influence of early experiences on brain development and early intervention's foundations in the transactional model of development and family-centered philosophy. It outlines the provisions of the legislation mandating early intervention and discusses personnel standards for early interventionists and approaches to service delivery through team models. It summarizes research into outcomes of early intervention and discusses current trends in early intervention, including the need for evidence-based practice and the controversy over provision of services in natural environments.
